In the interests of national security and world peace, the Grand Holy Empire of Imota will oppose this proposal. We cannot justify denying ourselves the ability to develop, build, field, and use nuclear weapons to defend ourselves in the face of non-member states who would not be bound by this proposal.

If all of Article II was made non-binding would that be helpful? This proposal is about stopping the spread of nuclear weapons, not banning them all together.

BTW, I forgot this is under Global Disarmament and strength is significant.

Pretty sure you mean 'pursue' in Section III, unless you envisage world leaders flipping through catalogues of nuclear reactors.

In Section II, I'm unclear why testing of existing weapons is still permitted.

I like the basic idea, though: a few bits of polish, and it'll be a good proposal.
